Welcome to Mecina Bombarón
This white mountain village is generally overlooked by all but the most dedicated walkers. Located on the GR7 path, 7km west of Yegen and 5km east of Bérchules, it was the birthplace and final refuge of Aben Aboo, the last leader of the Moors in Spain. His death in 1571 signalled the end of the Moorish rebellion and the beginning of their expulsion.
On the eastern side of the village, just below the GR7, you'll find a 13th-century medieval bridge. This was once part of the 'camino real', a one-time royal path connecting Granada and Almería.
